Regular price $750.00 Sale

FOR SALE IS A SUPER SLICK 60s ROYCE SKIN-DIVER CHRONOGRAPH WITH A NICE TROPICAL GLOSS RADIUM DIAL.  

 

  • CASE: SLEEK AND SEXY ALL-STEEL SKIN-DIVER CASE MEASURING A NICE 38.5mm ACROSS BEZEL BY 47mm LUG TO LUG. CASE IS IN VERY GOOD CONDITION WITH SOME SIGNS OF WEAR ON THE CASEBACK BUT IN OTHERWISE SHARP SHAPE THROUGHOUT.  NICELY AGED ROTATING BLACK BEZEL SPINS BIDIRECTIONALLY AND LOOKS SUPER COOL. THE SKIN-DIVER CHRONO CASES WEAR SO MODERN DUE TO THEIR LONG AND CHUNKY LUGS WHICH MAKE THESE SEEM LARGER THAN THEIR DIMENSIONS WOULD SUGGEST.

 

  • DIAL: NOW THIS IS VINTAGE PERFECTION RIGHT HERE.  CHECK OUT THAT AGED GLOSS-BLACK DIAL WHICH HAS TAKEN ON A NICE CHOCOLATE TROPICAL TONE WITH THE NATURAL AGING OF THAT LACQUER FINISH. I LOVE THOSE RADIUM FILLED STEEL MARKERS AND THAT SUPER CLEAN STICK STEEL HANDSET. MY FAVORITE PART OF THIS DIAL IS THAT APPLIED ROYCE WINGED LOGO WHICH MAKES YOU FEEL THAT THIS ONE IS A TOTAL BALLER.

 

  • MOVEMENT: THIS SKIN-DIVER RUNS ON A 17 JEWEL LANDERON 248 WHICH IS RUNNING SMOOTHLY, KEEPING A SOLID POWER RESERVE, KEEPING SOLID TIME, AND THE CHRONO FUNCTIONS WORK FLAWLESSLY. THIS WATCH WAS ACQUIRED FROM A COLLECTOR WHO HAD THIS SERVICED IN MID 2016.

 

  • WATCH IS MOUNTED ON A GREY VINTAGE STYLE LARGE HOLE TROPIC STRAP SUPPLIED BY CHEAPESTNATOSTRAPS.COM. I LOVE THESE COMFY RUBBER STRAPS, AND I THINK THIS ONE SUITS THE DEEP-SEA STYLE OF THIS ROYCE PERFECTLY. THE SKIN-DIVER CHRONOGRAPH IS AMONGST ONE OF THE MOST VERSATILE VINTAGE WATCHES YOU CAN FIND. THEY WEAR NICELY WITH THEIR LONG LUGS AND SWOOPING CURVED CASES WHICH MAKE THEM BOTH CLASSY AND SPORTY. THIS IS A PARTICULARLY FUN EXAMPLE WITH A DESIRABLE AGED DIAL AND PLENTY OF PANACHE.
